Find the perfect career
First we should aware that job is different from career, as Careerwise’s definition as below
“A job can be just going to work to earn a paycheck. A career means that each of your jobs, experiences, and training programs is helping you advance in pay or responsibility. In the end, is your work experience and education leading you somewhere? Or are you just going from job to job with no plan?
The real difference between a job and a career is your attitude.
People who want a career are always thinking about their long-term goals. They are thinking about what they can do now to make those goals happen in the future.
Beginning job seekers often must work hard for little money. It might take a few years to earn bigger paychecks and have more interesting job duties, but these lower-level jobs can lead to great opportunities.”
So the key point here is: choose a right career and then stick your activities to it until achieve the goal
If you know what you want from beginning then it is easier, you just focus all energy on action with discipline toward your goal then you will be success.
But if you don’t know what you want yet (I was used to in this case) I can share some tips from my experience
1.Do the Personality and Career test to know yourself .
2.Try different jobs in your personality spectrum. Only real action can help.
3.Select 2-3 most success jobs among the jobs that you have tried. Because small success will motivate you, then motivation will help you more success, it is the series of status that can accelerate bigger and bigger then unbelievable achievement that you can not imagine from beginning.
4. Do the deeper research about the career path of the most successful people in that field then compare and check if that is the person you want to be.
5.Think about how you can help other people by choosing this career. If you don’t need the money any more, do you eager to pursuit this career or not.
6.Last but not least, you have to stick discipline with the selected career because in the journey you will be challenged with a lots of things like: some friends have higher payment, easier jobs, better offer, other hot career, ….
